I graduated with a GED. I got high scores but I know graduating that way limits the likelihood of getting into a good school so I went the route of attending a private college, got a 3.95 GPA and am now applying to most of the top schools in america. However, there is a chance that I won't be accepted at my first few colleges. IS it normal to have applied to 16 different colleges? People look at me like I'm crazy when I say that and some have said, you should know where exactly you want to go, but the thing is, I do know where I want to go, but if I'm not accepted I'm not about to wait another year and reapply. I will choose second, third, --- 16th best if I have to because 16th is still pretty damned good. I just want to start my life. What do you think?
